Well, I know the windshields from coupes and convertibles are different than fastbacks, according to the Hollander exchange manual. It also says the '73 are different, too.

'72 Mustang Sprint Coupe 351C 4V/FMX/4.30 Trac Loc
'94 F-150 XL 5.8L/E4OD/3.55 Limited Slip
'97 Probe GTS 2.5L Disposable Commuter
Looking for the '70 Mach 1 of my dreams.

They are different, as are the windshields.

Yep they are different. I never understood
why Ford did that. Also the Drip rails on a coupe are about 2" shorter than a sportsroof. Found that out the hard way.
